Another August Birchbox Reveal

Hey, beauties! I'm not sure why, but I received a 2nd Birchbox for August. I'm not complaining, though! I definitely liked this box better than the first Birchbox I received. The first sample I received is Coastal Scents® Blush & Bronzer Palette. It says on the sample that it's one blush and one highlighter. I… Continue reading Another August Birchbox Reveal

K-Beauty Trend

Hey, beauties! I went to CVS today for facial cotton pads, and of course, I had to browse beauty and makeup products. CVS now sells K-Beauty (Korean Beauty) and has an entire aisle dedicated to it.

Ulta Skin Care Haul

So, yes I went to Ulta again today. I can't seem to stay away from that place lately. I will say this - that place is pure evil!! LOL It's literally overwhelming for me when I'm browsing the aisles. I did have a reason though (we beauty junkies don't need a reason, right?). I've been wanting… Continue reading Ulta Skin Care Haul

The Look I’m Loving!

Now that I have really dark black-violet hair, I decided to play a bit with my makeup today. The jury is still out regarding my new color - I'm still on the fence. I began my usual makeup routine starting with the blending of Laura Geller's Ethereal Spackle and Josie Maran's Protect & Perfect Skin… Continue reading The Look I’m Loving!
